About me

I offer one-to-one therapy for adults from quiet, comfortable rooms in confidential settings in East Finchley, North London. I have enhanced covid related safety measures in place for all face-to-face sessions and still offer online/phone sessions for those who are not ready to return to face to face work. 

As an integrative, relational psychotherapist, I combine different counselling and psychotherapy approaches to ensure that I can work in the most effective way, helping you in the way that suits you best. Since individuals think, feel and behave in different ways, it feels important to work with clients in individual ways too.

This may mean that we explore your patterns of behaviour and how you relate to others, this could mean looking at your childhood, the ways you learnt to behave. Doing this can help us to understand why you may do something in a certain way and how we can work on doing it in a different way.

It may also mean that we help you to identify practical approaches which can help you in making changes in your everyday life. Adapting how you think about something perhaps, so you no longer see it in a negative light, or it may be learning new ways to respond or react to others or giving you new skills to help you deal with events.

We will do all this together, working at a pace that feels right for you. In a non-judgemental space in which I hope you will feel comfortable and able to talk about anything which is important to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Minster Centre, London, gaining a Diploma in 2013 and an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy in 2015. I also have a Diploma in Schools & Adolescent Counselling from the Metanoia Institute, London.

I began working in private practice in 2014 and have several years’ experience working with a range of clients in a variety of settings including charitable organisations and training institutions. I continue to provide low and no-cost therapy, providing short and medium-term counselling alongside my long-term private client work.

I am a registered member of both the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and my work adheres to their strict professional standards.

As a member of both bodies, I ensure I am kept up to date with new areas of research and training within the field. I am committed to my own professional development and continue to study and take additional courses which interest me as part of my CPD (Continuing Professional Development).

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Additional information

Fees for the first session are £35. After that, if you decide to continue, my fees are £70 per session. All sessions last for 50 minutes and you will normally come once a week.

I offer a number of reduced fee places to those on low or no income, and to anyone who has been impacted financially as a result of the current pandemic. Please contact me if you feel this might apply to you.

The first meeting will provide an opportunity for you to get a feel for what it would be like working with me and whether counselling is right for you. During this session, we will also talk about how the sessions will work and you will have the opportunity to ask questions about what counselling is about, what your expectations may be, and any anxieties you have. We will also be able to discuss practicalities such as times to meet, holidays and missed sessions.
